It is a well managed company with an excellent management team for a highly lubricated world wide operation. Good performance and innovations are rewarded generously.

      Cons

      TSMC is a well structured and highly disciplined company. The company demands personal integrity and devotion at all times. It may not be suitable for 9-to-5 or free spirited type of people.
